Is the Sammy (Ascii) Guilty Gear XX arcade stick OPTICAL or MICROSWITCH


#1

Still on an optical trip. May have access to one of these for cheap.

Is anyone familiar with the Guilty Gear XX, model SMY-0502GX? Is this anything like the other Ascii FT sticks that they produced for DC and PS2?

#1 Concern, is the stick optical or microswitch?

#2 Concern, will it being 3.3V be a problem for modding to Akishop’s PS360+ or @Toodles‌ Cthulhu?


#2

I believe its Optical,
And in regards to installing a ps360+, The voltage wont matter cause if you do that then it will draw 5v from the USB line.
As normally with the PS360 you with use a Neutrik RJ45 feed through.


#3

Do you have one of these, are you 95% sure its optical?

Also wouldn’t it be a good idea to put resistors between PS360+ or Cthulhu’s VCC and the power wire of the optical joystick to get +5V down to +3.3V?


#4

I have one but the joystick was microswitch.

The only time I found an optical in a stick was the Ascii Dreamcast FT CvS2 edition.


#5

Why not get an optical board board from toodles or focus attack?


#6

pretty sure its microswitch though can’t confirm


#7

THIS ^


#8

Because if I wanted it, the stick would be $Free.NintyNine + Free Shipping

Also don’t see the optical option on @jmanDMC‌ 's FocusAttack.com anymore, goes to a dead link.

Get the Toodles Spark CE.

Thanks for the intel you guys, looks like it’s Ascii Stick FT’s, Zero 3’s, Zero 3 Ultimate’s, or Justice’s that I gotta track down then.

Damn you SAMMY!!!

SparkCE is best optical in everyday for jap stick.

handles power differently

can change sensitivity

@fifty8mm is selling an ascii here:

Seriously though sparkce+ jlf + 2lb spring is money. works perfect with circle gate and octo too so you can throw a 3 or 4 lb spring in it with an injustice bat top /w circle gate and feels almost identical to happ 360

i roll at 60ohmz. although 55.5 is nice too.

http://godlikecontrols.com/

theres a link to the sparkce srk forum too on that page. i think its $60 total. with shipping. well worth it.

Thanks @sethian0‌, appreciate the advice homie, the funning thing is I was trying to buy the whole stick from @fifty8mm‌ before he parted it out.

I “will” eventually get a SparkCE, but man I got too many builds going right now!!!

Sometimes you just wanna open a retail box, pull out a joystick, and play some CvS2… you know???
